Fees & Payment

Families must have an active direct debit before commencing care.  Debit Success is the preferred method of payment and fees are taken every Wednesday from your nominated bank account for the current week. If you do not want your fees paid through Direct Debit then you need to pay via Eftpos in advance. The centre can not accept cash due to government regulations . Fees are payable when your child is absent from the centre due to sickness, annual leave, occasional absences and public holidays to keep your child’s place at the centre.
